Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways to get involved at Armstrong. Review the list of committees and events and consider participating in one or more that interest you.

Gardening Volunteers

Volunteer in the fall and/or the spring to help weed, rake, mulch, and plant flowers in the Armstrong gardens. Volunteers are also also welcome year-round. Students, AES parents, alumni, scout troops, students looking to fulfill service hours, and anyone from the community are welcome to volunteer! Look for sign up information in the PTA Weekly or contact Jenevieve Lenz at jj.vvogue@gmail.com for more details.

Grace Art

The GRACE Art program was established in 1976 by Greater Reston Arts Center to supplement and support local children's art experience in school. The program is based on in-class presentations of art historical subjects, followed by coordinating art projects. Whether you think your art talent ends at doodling or you are a master artist, or have an interest in history and biographies, or maybe it's as simple as you want to volunteer to be a positive influence on the your child's classroom, your role, as a docent(volunteer), is vital to bringing art and art history into the classroom environment. Please email emmakhan@aol.com if you have questions or would like to sign up.

Helping Hungry Kids

Did you know that there are children in the Armstrong community that do not have enough food over the weekend? The Helping Hungry Kids (HHK) program collects and distributes food to those in need. This worthy program is in dire need of volunteers to keep this program running. Email Armstrong social worker Nicole Cox at nacox@fcps.edu for more information.

LINK Food Rescue

Armstrong students support their community by contributing unopened lunch items to the LINK food bank. Volunteers are needed to pick up the food items from Armstrong on Tuesdays & Fridays. Please click here to sign up to pick up food at Armstrong and deliver to the Embry Rucker Shelter.

School Libary

Flexible hours and dates! Our school library needs volunteers during the school year to help children choose books, check books in and out, shelve books and work on special projects with the Librarian, Mrs. Seidel. Click here to visit the Volunteer Sign Up link.
